New Delhi: Vistara, the full service airline owned by Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, has entered into a code-share agreement with SilkAir, the airline said on Tuesday.

SilkAir is Singapore Airlines’ regional subsidiary which flies into India.

Code-sharing allows an airline to book passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless transport to multiple destinations where it has no presence.

The code share on Indian domestic flights operated by Vistara will be effective from today.

Vistara is working on a plan to go international by next year. The code-share will help it feed its parent airline as well as its own flights.

Singapore Airlines and its subsidiary airlines currently serve 15 destinations in India from Singapore.

Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its “SQ” designator code to Vistara-operated flights beyond Mumbai and New Delhi to 10 destinations while SilkAir will add its “MI” designator code to Vistara-operated flights beyond Bengaluru and Kolkata to six destinations within India.

Vistara will compete with lobby group Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA) members, including InterGlobe Aviation Ltd-run IndiGo; GoAir, operated by Go Airlines Ltd; SpiceJet Ltd and Jet Airways (India) Ltd, which control nearly 80% of the domestic aviation market and even international routes, besides Air India.

FIA has already taken the aviation ministry to court over grant of licences to AirAsia India, which is 51% owned by Tata Sons and 49% by Malaysia’s AirAsia Bhd; and Vistara, in which Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines are partners.
